"Powerful and compelling"

Punk Rock is an intense and powerful piece of theatre, by Simon Stephens (stage adaptation of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time), who has been described as the most prolific British playwright of his generation. Featuring a superb line up of talented young actors, Punk Rock is an honest, no holds barred, exploration of the souls of 21st century youth. Prepare for an edge-of-the-seat thrilling production. August 10 - September 06 2014 .

"a remarkable new play" Michael Billington, The Guardian
